"Detail" (Clean/Polish/wax) Recommendations in So Cal... PLEASE!!!

Looking for recommendations for a GOOD detailing shop anywhere in the Los Angeles metro area (I guess Orange County should be OK too)...

('08 Black C300)... Paint seems to be in decent shape with the exception of a few minor scratches here and there but mainly interested in removing swirl marks...

I do have a PC 7424 and a bunch of products (Menzerna, Zymol, Klasse, Meguiars), but frankly, I don't have the time to do a major detail job AND I am scared I might burn through the clear coat if I try it myself . So looking for a pro who can give it a good start, after which, I can maintain it easily and properly.

Thanks in advance!

You'll probably have better luck if you post this in the Detailing forum...

You're right... I only browse the W204 forum and keep forgetting there is a whole other world out there.

If Brandon doesn't work out for you, just throw out a call on detailing forums like autopia, detailingbliss, autogeek, or even meguiars. Just be warned, quality paint correction will be pricey. You're gonna spend a couple bills at least for single stage correction. One of the top guys I know out in Chino Hills charge about a 1k for full detail....but then again, he uses mainly expensive Swissvax products. If you want a shop and not some guy working out of his garage to take care of you....I believe you can contact the guys at Meguiar's in Irvine or Chemical Guys in Inglewood. Detailing.com runs a shop out in Irvine as well, but they generally don't do full details for public.

I think I know exactly who you're talking about in Chino Hills... And I have contacted him. Yes, he does amazing work but his response felt like he was interviewing me for a job and yet he provided no pricing info whatsoever... Only that he is booked up & backed up... Easy to see why!

Thanks for the referral and all the valuable input. Much appreciated!
